Since the Earth's surface is 71% water, why not indulge yourself and explore our world's oceans?

Complete your PADI Open Water Diver course with Eastpoint Scuba and you have the freedom to dive with your chosen buddy anywhere around the world, at home or on holiday.

The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most popular scuba diving program in the world. During your course with Eastpoint Scuba you will gain a fundamental knowledge of scuba diving theory and equipment, as well as developing essential diving skills. The PADI Open Water Diver Program with Eastpoint Scuba will enable you to achieve the certification that leads to a lifetime of amazing adventures.

Your adventure will start in the swimming pool, allowing you time to explore the new sensations and learn some new skills whilst being closely supervised by our Instructors.  In between pool sessions you will have time to read through the well laid out manual to boost your theoretical knowledge about the subject.  When both pool and book work is completed we will take you into open water to complete your qualifying dives.
